Educational Center

Sea Turtle, Inc. Educational Center

In 2015, Sea Turtle, Inc. welcomed more than 120,000 visitors. 8,000 of those visitors were groups of school children and teachers. Additionally, Sea Turtle, Inc. hosts countless children from Scouts, day cares, nature camps, and children's homes across the United States. Our current facilities limit us in the number of children we are able to take in each group and prohibit us from hosting many special programs. Our second summer of Sea Turtle Camp was so successful that we had a waiting list for almost every session. Education is one of the most powerful tools we can utilize as a conservation organization. A larger, modern Educational Center would allow us to cater to the growing interest in sea turtle conservation and provide the facilities to hold special events and programs to better uphold our mission.
